Love, war and pol­i­tics

Houston Chronicle Sunday - - OUTLOOK -

Re­gard­ing “Ran out of ques­tions? Here are a few more” (Page A15, Thurs­day), af­ter read­ing Ruth Mar­cus’ col­umn, let me of­fer the can­did Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion re­sponse you’ll never see or hear.

Has Mar­cus ever heard the ex­pres­sion, “all’s fair in love and war”? Well, pol­i­tics is war, baby. So the ques­tion is re­ally “What does “all’s fair” in­clude?” In our opinion, which is the only one that counts any­way, it in­cludes: fab­ri­cat­ing, twist­ing and/or omit­ting facts to cre­ate our ver­sion of the truth; lies from “lit­tle white” to “whop­pers”; cheat­ing (even if we get caught), and yes, col­lud­ing with for­eign gov­ern­ments.

An­other fa­vorite of ours is “the end jus­ti­fies the means” and we won, she lost, end of story. Ernest Davis, Hous­ton
